DU admissions will kick-start from 1st June 2016 now as Delhi University officials stated on the topic. The admissions to the academic session commencing in 2016 were to start from 25th May initially according to schedule notified. However, since Delhi University is vying to take the admission process completely online, shutting off offline applications, the move has caused the delay. Nonetheless, it’s sure shot that Delhi University admission 2016 will now be begun in full-fledged mode two days later on June 1, 2016 through varsity’s web portal- www.du.ac.in.
Delhi University is one of the most sought after university in India, a historically prestigious one, and this fact is testified every year by the whooping average of 2.5 lakh applications the varsity receives during the admission months. Another testimonial of DU being the most desired educational institution is the high cut-off scores for undergraduate courses.
The renowned Central University which is gearing up for admissions to undergraduate courses for the next academic session, is planning to make the entire admission process completely ‘online’ this time. The admission process for the undergraduate courses which was expected to kick start from May 25, has now been scheduled to begin from June 1, 2016.
The announcement came as a relief to students and parents as this year DU has delayed the process even as the admission committee had decided to start the admission process from May 28. The admission process is getting delayed due to technical issues as the entire process is going online.
The university will be completing registration by May 31 for Ph.D, M.Phil. and undergraduate courses based on entrance examination. DU will be launching registration of candidates for UG courses based on merit immediately after that on June 1.
Last year, the varsity had attempted the same but offline admissions also continued as there were concerns from parents and students about the feasibility of the process. This means no application form will be available ‘offline’ from this year onward at any of the associated colleges. The registration process for UG courses will be completely online including Sports, Extra Curricular Activities, Kashmiri Migrants and CW (Defence) category.
Till last year, the students were required to submit their documents in the particular college at the time of seeking the admission. But the same will not be followed this year. Instead, from this year, applicants will be required to submit their self-attested documents online along with the central registration form.
Documents required to be submitted
Documents include Class 10 certificate, Class 12 provisional certificate, character certificate and transfer certificate. Students will also have to upload their recent photograph and scanned copy of their signature in the online form. All documents required to be uploaded should be self-attested.
For students applying under reserved category, documents signed by the competent authority will have to be uploaded. Students also have to submit income certificate.
For those applying under Children of War Widows category, education concession certificate has to be submitted online. This year, admissions under this category are online unlike last year, when admissions were done at the university conference center.
Students applying under Sports and ECA quota will have to submit distinction certificates of last three years in descending order starting from April 1, 2013 to March 31, 2016.
Reservation will be given to students under SC/ST, OBC and people with physical disability reservation rules. There is also a Kashmiri Migrant and Children of War Widow category under which 5 % seats are reserved. These seats are supernumerary.
DU has also decided to hold entrance exams for certain undergraduate courses, including Bachelor of Management Studies, BA Multimedia and Mass Communication, Bachelor of Elementary Education, and Bachelor of Business Administration.
